Once you have installed the OS, you can reduce the RAM dedicated to it by your virtualization software.
Before that, disable the GUI with something like that (might be a service instead, I have no Solaris 10 around to check)
# /etc/init.d/dtlogin stop
# /usr/dt/bin/dtconfig -d

or perhaps
svcadm disable gdm

i found in (Solaris 10 8/07 Installation Guide: Basic Installations - page 12) that for x86 the memory requirement for the text mode is 384-512 MB.
This was published five years ago and was likely already obsolete at that time. The installation process demands much more RAM than that.
I am not sure if i know what do you mean by that.. could you explain more please?
I mean Solaris includes its own virtualization capability which is far much lighter than the one you use and might suffice to your needs.
